I am having a fusion wedding (Indian & Rustic) in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I am having a Hindu ceremony that will be about 2 hours. I am having programs explaining exactly what’s going on, but I don’t want my guests to be bored.
What can I provide to them in their seats so that they won’t be too tired by the end of it? I was thinking a fun crossword, but any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

@thelittlespoon: I don’t know what happens at a Hindu wedding; could you tell me what a guest would be doing during the 2 hours? Do guests regularly tune it out by reading books or doing puzzles? Do guests normally sit there patiently watching?
I would normally feel rude doing a crossword during someone’s wedding.

Honestly, a program explaining what’s going on will go a long way. I went to a Hindu ceremony once and it was lovely, but I really wish I knew what was happening. Maybe you could add more detail and not only explain what is happening, but also explain it’s meaning and why it’s included.
We stuck a word search at the end of our programs since we had a full Catholic mass and those tend to run close to an hour. So you could do that or a crossword as you mentioned. But I wouldn’t worry about doing anything more than the explanations and possible 1 puzzle.
